    Fold the metal lock washers over.
    Use a very large shifter.
    Or use large multigrips.

    Or get one of Grandpas witworth spanners and grind it to shape, your very own SST to keep.

    I took em off just yesterday. I ended up taking the handle off my jack and slipping it over the end of the spanner for max torque/leverage and it came off easy.

    or you could use a 30mm or 27mm spanner depending on the brand of rack ends they are.

    You normaly have to buy the rack ends to get the washers. I have new washers here if you need them.
